The best potential tournament in years?

If you look at the draw can anyone remember a tournament draw set up so nicely, with so many potential blockbuster matchups?

Hewitt vs Gonzalez R1 (Best match in first round IMO)

Then we could potentially get:
Cilic vs Tipsarevic R2 (Could be a very competitive match)
Hewitt vs Gasquet R3 (Hewitt's last stand? Gasquet time to fulfill his potential?)
Stepanek vs Verdasco R3 (Rematch of a 3 set Final earlier this year)
Roddick vs Querrey R3 9 (A potential passing of the torch in American tennis?)
Federer vs Safin R3 (Roger & Marat, enough said)
Monfils vs Nadal QF (Rematch of Madrid where Gael won and controlled the match)
Murray vs Tsonga QF (Last year's big first round upset, rematch!)
Roddick vs Djokovic QF (Roddick might not make it this far, but last year's US OPEN = Fireworks!)
~ Honestly I could list all day

Sure most of these guys still need to go out and win their matches, but can anyone remember a Grand Slam that has the potential to be one of the best overall tournament we have seen in quite some time? Just so many potential great matches, I'm excited for this one!

I'm sad because I agree that there are loads of really awesome matches but I won't be able to watch most of them

ROGER & JANKO & LE MAGICIEN & Stan & A-Rod & Novak & Rafa
